Lake Kawaguchi, Yamanashi, Japan

Enjoy glamping inspired experience, totally surrounded by nature, facing the stunning landscape of Mount Fuji.

It’s time to check in and choose a rucksack – from a wall covered with them.

This bag, which you will keep during your whole stay, contains a selection of what a camper needs. Once you have your equipment, you will be taken directly to your room on a Jeep.

Come out of your ‘cabin’ and climb a few steps, and you will find yourself among the trees. It feels as if you are walking through a wood.

Up on the heights, wide terraces make a great place to stop for a little nap in a hammock, for a cup of coffee or tea, around a campfire, or if you’re feeling more energetic, you can be shown how to split logs with an axe! Not as easy as you might think.

The cabins are located in one section of a national park.

As a result of volcanic activity 10,000 years ago, the landscape of this park is scattered with craters, ice caves, and mixed forests of deciduous trees and evergreens, as well as geographic formations that once enclosed Lake Kawaguchi.

All this, untouched, is on display through the large cabin windows that overlook the scenery, with only the seasons transforming the landscape throughout the year.

The cabins feature indirect lighting that spans the length of the room, with downlights used only sparingly. A soft light spreads across the ceiling and floor, enhancing the feeling of comfort offered by the room the longer one stays.

The landscape, itself, is dotted with tiny lights that only illuminate the footpaths. These lights are intentionally understated so as not to detract from the innumerable stars which are visible at night.

Hoshinoya Fuji offers a variety of activities, many of which take place on the Cloud Terrace.

From lessons on how to brew an invigorating cup of coffee to walks through Aokigahara Forest–a national park also known as the “Sea of Trees”–there is always something to do, no matter the season or the weather.

The resort’s Glamping Masters are always on hand to offer their recommendations, as well as their assistance.

Hoshinoya Fuji is located on the slopes of a hill just north of Lake Kawaguchi.
As the resort faces south, it receives sunlight throughout the day and offers a direct view of Mt. Fuji beyond the lake. The hill, itself, is a colorful mosaic of plants, cedars, pines, and other flora.
These elements make the hill the perfect location for a glamping resort.
From the station at Kawagushiko, it takes only fifteen minutes to reach the resort’s reception area.

There are only 2 of these special cabins, each of which features a balcony furnished with a wood stove.

As a fire dances inside the stove, guests will find themselves enveloped in a pleasingly natural warmth, enhancing the sense of seclusion afforded by the balcony.

Staring out into the darkness of the night while listening to the fire snapping and crackling will make guests feel as if they are in their own private getaway.

One of the many draws of camping is eating outdoors. There is something about the natural environment that enlivens the flavor of the food. An enhanced version of this experience is offered at Hoshinoya Fuji.

Guests are offered 3 entirely different dining options.

  • Those who enjoy the communal buzz of a campsite may dine in the dining hall, which has a grill station in the center.
  • Guests looking for something more intimate may also try their hand at Dutch oven cooking with their own private chef on the Cloud Terrace.
  • For complete privacy, guests may even choose an outdoor dining experience in the comfort of their cabins.

The dining hall looks out on a serene red pine forest. Guests can take in the view as the chef grills large cuts of beef, preparing them to perfection, right there in the dining hall. Guests may also join him at the grill station for a more personal experience.

You can try making pizzas or “smoking” food. These are sociable, fun activities for all the family. At lunchtime, put on your apron and “spin the dough” like a real “pizzaiolo”! The pizza workshop gives everyone a chance to use their skill to make their pizza as round as possible.

A smart wooden box contains all the ingredients for a great start to the day. Soft fresh bread baked in a cast-iron pot, butter, jams, the delicious ‘chef’s special’ omelette, fruit juice, everything you need to fill you with energy.

Later in the day, the smokery workshop will reawaken the interest of the whole family. People of all ages will love this. There are different ingredients to be smoked: Tofu, salmon, venison sausages, miso and nuts.
